    This comprehensive programme is intended for paediatricians and related professionals interested in global child health. UCL is uniquely positioned to offer this new pathway, which combines teaching at both the UCL Institute of Child Health, with its strong links to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and the UCL Institute for Global Health.

    The Global Child Health pathway aims to provide an opportunity for medical graduates, and graduates from related fields, to study global issues in child health. Students build an awareness of current and future developments in paediatric medicine and global child health and gain the skills necessary to critically appraise practice and policy, and undertake independent research if the full MSc is taken.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

    The programme consists of three core modules (45 credits), five optional modules (75 credits) and a dissertation/report (60 credits).

    A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months, flexible two to five years) is offered.

    A Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits, one year part-time, flexible one to two years) is offered.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    Applicants should have a keen interest in paediatrics or child health. Non-medically qualified applicants should normally have a minimum of an upper second-class UK Bachelor's degree or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard, and appropriate specialist experience of working in hospitals, child health or public health services for children and families.
